Miller will represent Joshua's sixth unbeaten opponent since 2015.

There is already speculation that Katie Taylor could feature on the undercard if she adds the WBO title to her WBA and IBF belts against Rose Volante of Brazil in Philadelphia on St Patrick's weekend.

That makes the fighters a combined 45-0-1 with 41 knockouts.

"June 1 I am heading to The Big Apple and I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more". It has been an honor and a blessing to fight at some of the best venues in the world at home, in the United Kingdom, not least Wembley Stadium.

"I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker".

"AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard", said Miller.

Miller is an offensive tackle-sized heavyweight who has surprising athleticism for a man his size.

The last time Miller weighed under 290 was on November 11, 2017, when he defeated Mariusz Wach while weighing 283.25, which is 39.25 pounds more than Joshua's career high of 254.

Multiple Twitter users took to the internet to ask who Miller is, while another demanded to know what "credentials" he has that make him worthy of fighting AJ. Its dog eat dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite, he'll be leaving NY empty-handed. He'll be leaving NY empty-handed.
